More about me
I hold a degree in Psychology from the University of Buenos Aires. After graduation I worked as a qualitative market researcher for ten years. I moved to York in 1999 and began my counselling training at York St. John University where I got an Certificate in Counselling. Then I moved onto complete a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from Leeds Metropolitan University. Since completing the Diploma I have developed clinical experience at 'One Parent Families', the 'Tuke Centre' in York and 'Solace', a voluntary sector organisation that offers help and support to asylum seekers and refugees in Leeds.
In addition I have also worked at Doncaster Rape and Sexual Abuse Counselling Centre where I accrued experience with emotionally vulnerable and psychologically frail clients coming from disempowered backgrounds. In 2008 I gained my BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) accreditation and joined the Primary Care Counselling Team and at later on the Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies at the NHS where I still work. In this setting I engage with a 'wider' range of emotional and psychological presentations in short term counselling.
In my private practice, I have offered counselling to 'clinically depressed clients' as part of a research project developed by the University of York.
In 2011 I have gained a Post-Graduate Certificate in Clinical Supervision at the University of Leeds.
In 2020, Counselling for Depression Certificate.
